Making any attempt at limiting the availability of KNOWN CONTENT, is like trying to push toothpaste back into the tube. It's out here, it can be had, and it's free.

As for commercial potential the stuff that will bring them the dollars they seek will come from undiscovered pearls in the vault, remastered surround sound releases like those that Mickey is working on, and concert video.

I don't know about the rest of uze, but I've got enough crystal clear good quality boards in my hard drive to keep my wife ragged for a dozen blue moons. This pissing contest with LMA and Wolfgangs Vault is really much ado about nothing. Do they possess some undiscovered sublime recording of Dark Star that none of us have ever heard?

Fact is that it looks like the band has been very selective in who they pick their fights with. If it's high profile, they're coming for ya. Don't think for a minute that they're unaware of the bit torrent trading and the MP3 sites. It's just that there's absolutely nothing to gain by trying to herd all the cats back into their cages.

The only thing that they can even attempt to protect is the rapidly dwindling income stream derived from a band that failed to exist as of August 10th 1995. Or was that December 31st, 1977.

got ya - so what could/should they have done - or what is known content? the sbd's taken from them unknowingly "were" their's b4 they got squeezed out of the tube and they are suing for compensation? so it is about past acts not future ones?
